Chinese Dulcimer VR


Chinese Dulcimer (Yangqin) is one of the lesser known instrument in China and it is one of the most challenging instrument to play in traditional Chinese music. However, the main factors that stops Yangqin from getting popular in China are mainly due to its size and cost. The instrument itself would weight up to 30kg which makes it very difficult to carry around compares to other traditional instruments. And playing Yangqin is a very costly activity not only because of the price of the instrument itself but also is extremely expensive to find an experienced Yangqin teacher because of its difficulty and popularity. Therefore, there is a great potential of using the emerging Virtual Reality (VR) technology to provide people with a new way of learning Yangqin.
